LBReport.com received calls and emails at our ELB HQ. We felt the temblor while working away at our computer workstation. A slight shaking developed into a rolling, bouncing movement...and we began getting out of our chair before things calmed down in about five seconds. Two chandeliers were swaying gently.
A central LB reader reported feeling it about a mile east of downtown LB.
